    About You

    You make things happen. You can monitor several moving pieces and can manage multiple projects at any given time. You love checking things off your list and finding creative ways to get things done. You have an enthusiasm for progressive politics and electing Democrats at all levels of the ballot.

    You are organized, self-motivated, and able to complete projects individually and as a team. You are willing to take on and complete large, complex projects that require significant time investment as well as a number of smaller, more administrative tasks.
